Ghost of Tsushima released on July 17 after months of anticipation, with rave reviews and a great reception online to Sucker Punch Productions’ latest effort.

The action-adventure game revolves around Jin Sakai, one of the last remaining samurai on Tsushima Island during the first Mongol invasion of Japan in 1274, featuring an open-world and multiple side quests along the way.

One thing that is dragging players away from the core gameplay, though, is the incredible aesthetics of the game, and the best way of showing this off is in photo mode.

Photo mode in Ghost of Tsushima can provide some exquisite images.

Like many other games, Ghost of Tsushima’s photo mode provides an opportunity to show off your achievements to the world, but also to capture some of the more picturesque scenes you stumble upon.

There are some beautiful areas in Tsushima, such as the Omi Monastery or around the Field of the Equinox Flower, but it’s not enough to simply go there and grab a screenshot; you can actually use photo mode to make it look even better.

Here’s how to use Ghost of Tsushima’s photo mode, and get the best quality pictures in the game:

  1. Find a setting that you want to take a photo of and position Jin accordingly.
  2. Hit right on the D-Pad to open photo mode.
  3. Adjust the settings, including type of shot, music (for a video, if desired), and more to get the perfect shot — trial and error is key here.
  4. Take a screenshot using the PS4’s share button.
  5. Press right on the D-Pad again to close photo mode.

You can take tracking shots in Ghost of Tsushima’s photo mode, as well as fantastic stills.

And that’s it! It’s a relatively pain-free process, but one that you can spend as much time on as you want, and you can easily find time flies by while you’re setting up the perfect shot.

As well as what’s mentioned above, you can also change Jin’s emotion and facial expressions, the wind direction, lighting, color hues and more, so the possibilities are endless with Ghost of Tsushima’s photo mode.

So jump into Tsushima Island and see what you can come up with — you might just surprise yourself with your photography skills.

Dr Disrespect goes bald in bizarre Agent 47 cosplay for Hitman 3 stream

Streaming legend Dr Disrespect got into character for his playthrough of Hitman 3 by getting rid of his iconic mullet and going bald to cosplay as Agent 47.

Dr Disrespect is known to go the extra mile when trying out big new blockbuster video game releases. Notably, the two-time revamped his entire intro for the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 with some insane production quality.

While most of his character-specific streams have been limited to graphics such as reimagining himself as a Valorant skin prior to the game’s release, he decided to up the ante with a simple cosplay for Hitman.

During his January 20 stream of Hitman 3, the Two-Time Champion opted to cover his head in an attempt to appear bald, just like the game’s protagonist.

Unfortunately, Doc didn’t also opt for Agent 47’s signature suit with the red tie and kept his more traditional attire, sunglasses and all.

Amusingly, one could say that Doc and Agent 47 are polar opposites. While Dr Disrespect is a bombastic, larger-than-life personality, 47 is quite emotionless and calculating. You won’t see him flipping open an old phone after “getting a call” from shroud, TimTheTatMan, Ninja or another streamer.

As such, it makes for an interesting contrast with Doc cosplaying as a character whose only common theme is the desire to kill – in video games at least.

Speaking of the games, since the franchise was rebooted in 2016 as part of the World of Assassination trilogy, it has received critical acclaim. Enough so to make Doc even try his luck in the world of stealth.

That said, according to streaming Star, this was his first time ever playing a Hitman game despite seeing footage and gameplay of the other titles. Bravely, he decided to play on the game’s hardest difficulty, aiming for a zero death experience.

While the game may not exactly allow the Dr Disrespect to bring his signature violence, speed and momentum given its emphasis on stealth and infiltration, he seems to be enjoying it enough to see it through to its completion.
